Numis Canada 1954 1 Dollars Cufflink Ankers
|WPM Catalog Code
Description (Courtesy of BankOfCanadaMuseum.ca)
Initially printed by Canadian Bank Note Company Ltd. and later by British American Bank Note Company as well, the face of the $1 note features an engraving of Queen Elizabeth II based on a Karsh portrait that appears on all denominations in the series. The portrait was moved to the right to eliminate wear from folding. It was felt that the change from a decorative frame to a soft vignette would make counterfeiting more difficult. The Saskatchewan prairie scene on the back was engraved by Carl Louis Irmscher of American Bank Note Company.
When creating the ankers we attempt to capture interesting aspects of each bill. Unfortunately, we can't guarantee selected areas such as serial numbers, year or denomination for specific purchases. Each piece has interesting aspects on the front or back. There are even ankers that appear to have just white space, but reveal watermark features when held up to the light. The full image of the banknotes is just a sample and not the actual ones used in the production of the ankers.
Please note that the Numis series of ankers are sold individually and not as pairs.
